Electrical Engineering

The Electrical Engineering (EE) major prepares future officers for exciting careers with a focus on developing and implementing cutting-edge technologies. The program challenges cadets to become critical thinkers who can use computer systems and analytical methods to solve real-world technical problems.

  • An understanding of a systems approach and fluency with computers are at the core of the major
  • Research and capstone areas of emphasis include autonomy and robotics, communications and signal processing, cyber security, and power and renewable energy
  • The program is accredited by ABET, the premier U.S. engineering accreditation agency

Areas of Concentration

Each cadet pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (BSEE) will choose a track, or area of emphasis, within Electrical Engineering:

  • Computer Track focuses on software design, databases and computer networks
  • Systems Track focuses on digital communications, antennas, and motors and generators


Electrical Engineering majors work with state-of-the-art test and measurement equipment, hardware and software in top of the line facilities such as our Analog and Digital Circuits Lab, Communications and Antennas Lab, Computer Programming Lab, Cyber Lab, Electromechanical Systems Lab, Software Engineering Lab and more.
